vb .net opening a socket into secure unix

I have been trying to open a socket into secure unix. I have used the
following code and tried with every protocol available in .net but
cannot even get passed this line of code due to an incompatibility of
the address and the protocol. Does anyone have any suggestions.

m_objClientSocket = New Socket(AddressFamily.Unix, SocketType.Stream,
ProtocolType.Unspecified)

Thanks
Holly

My guess is that you need to use SSH and I don't believe .Net supports that
protocol (even though it's an open standard.)

For secure SSH protocol for .NET you may wish to consider SSH Factory
for .NET
